It took me quite a lot to read this book. It is full of years this and that, people that passed through Bill Gates”s life, their names, so, was bit harder to read that kind of book, for me.
But it made me think and realize how he thinks.
Let”s get to business!
Bill was encouraged to occupy himself with interests that would stretch the mind. There are those people that like to watch TV, be informed about other peoples lives, and those that are living their lives as best as they can. There is a huge difference!
Bill Gates was doing creative work, trying to build a programs, computers and whatever goes with it. Remember, your brain is like a muscle. If you are not stretching your brain, your brain dies. Do some work today, play a games that will stretch your mind. Read, read a lot.
Bill Gates always thought about himself how he could do anything he sets his mind to. Where would I be if I believed in myself in the past, as I believe in myself now. I would be in a completely different place. It is very important, actually it is crucial to believe in yourself. You gotta believe in yourself, and believe you can achieve all your hearts desires. He believed, and still believes in himself, thats why he is the one of the richest guy in the world.
He once said: “Smartness is an ability to absorb new facts. To ask an insightful question. To absorb it in real time. A capacity to remember. To relate to domains that may not seem connected at first” It is a credo that has served him well.
Don”t compare yourself with anyone in the world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.
Find Your True Calling
Do you have something that fascinates you? Something that blows your mind? Something that constantly you wonder about? I am sure you do! So, embrace that. And start learning, research about that, and do some testing. Bit after bit, you will become familiar with this thing, and that will get the ball rolling, and soon after that, you will realize that only your brain was limiting you. Find your true love and intend to nurture it. That”s what Bill Gates did.
Gates possesses enormous personal resources and self motivation, but he also realized early on, that he needed to find like mids with whom to collaborate, if he was going to fulfill his grandest dreams.
You might have now your big big big goals, but if you hanging around with people that don”t have any goals in life, they are not driven by anything, you are not going to succeed in life. they will hold you down.
If you have some goals in life, make sure to find like minded people. People who will encourage you, people who will tell you: “You can!” Find people like this and stick to them.
A winning team needs members who are all prepared to learn from each other. Gates is blessed with sufficient self belief that he is not afraid to work with people who may have skills that surpass his in certain areas, and who are unafraid to challenge him.
If you are reading this and you read till now, I believe you wanna succeed in life. Is that right? Tell yourself! “I wanna succeed in life!” “I will succeed in life!” and “I am already successful!”
That is all grand, but do you know how to make choices? Do you? Do you know how to make a good one? Do you know what do you really want? You see, Bill Gates knew how to make a choices, and most importantly he sticked to this choices, that”s why he is succeeding.
Second important thing is to think more broadly. Let”s suppose you made a choice, and now you are thinking how to get there. You came up just to two ideas of how to get there, but there are many other ways, and you can tap into that intelligence, just if you think more broadly.
There is a lot more written in this book by Daniel Smith
